Lumia 900 sells out

John Moe Apr 16, 2012

Not sure what to make of this but it appears the Nokia Lumia is sold out on the AT&T store. The Lumia 900 is, of course, the new entry into the smartphone game by Nokia and that company’s effort to get a toehold in the smartphone market that has thus far eluded it. It also runs on the Windows Phone platform, which Microsoft is hoping will put them in the game as well. Both the matte and cyan colored phones are shown as out of stock so maybe it’s working, maybe there’s been a run on this thing.

If it’s a hit, that’s welcome news for Nokia, which had its stock downgraded and is struggling big time as a business.

Over the weekend, Nokia also said it has fixed a bug on the Lumia 900 which was causing it to sometimes lose a data connection.
